A brief introduction to how Entrepreneur Tim Schmidt, the SEO Optimization Expert, became a well rounded dominator of search engines.
Today he shares his top level advice on how to become an expert at search engine marketing. As told to us via teleconference.
How did you become an expert at SEO?
We’ve heard that it requires 10,000 hours which have to be given and this may probably be achieved in about not less than 10 years you will be thinking. It is also not just about working on the go for 10,000 hours, on the other hand, this will require making a concerted effort to actually be good at this and have the ability to put to use this intelligence in what you are doing.
Tim: Certainly not. There are several courses on SEO out there and many people out there to mentor the young people. Also pages like Moz.com and SearchEngineLand.com are great resources to just browse and pick up information. I don’t recommend using any black hat forums until you really have a grip on what the fundamentals entail.
So therefore an expert SEO will make the effort to have a look at a range of websites and to understand what is required and necessary for search engine optimization and gathering this information in your brain within some seconds. Even if you review some website visitor reports this will also give you a lot of details for your proper understanding. On other hand, you also have to keep your mind open about the other types of cases that can be there which may be very difficult and also websites which may have some strange issues along with new types of circumstances and situations.
Tim: Very true. You have to know what on-page tactics are working before you can begin to dissect a website and see if it has any good or bad SEO going to it. It all starts on the website.
If you are faced with a website which is difficult, an expert SEO should have the capacity and the ability to gather the huge volume of data which is present along with looking for a report which will show the number of problems which are prevalent and may also be hidden which may always be hard since such chances are also difficult to come across. Generally, the expert SEO should be able to work his way around spontaneously occupying only vague and unclear clues which may surface somehow. Here their experience may also be of a high level which is just right to fulfill this responsibility.
Tim: Yes, there are more difficult sites to rank, if that is what you are asking. We really have to take a deep dive into the links and use tools like Ahrefs.com and even SemRush.com to understand the backlinks that exist.
An expert SEO can also build up the balance of the selected rules of the game which can be based on the minor clues, once the work begins to advance. Only apart from communicating with others the rules, maxims and guidelines may all disappear along with a situation where a different world begins to emerge within SEO where the expert SEO who guides the clients or teaches them may deviate from what they do and they present that they will do.
Tim: Not really sure if there is a question there, but I’ll take a stab at it. I think you are suggesting that tactics and strategies may evolve over time. Yes, this is 100% true. We have to be shifty as SEO’s and make sure we are constantly evolving.
